Otherwise known as a Madagascar Green-veined Charaxes, the rumor is that the scientist who discovered this caterpillar noticed its similarity to a Pokemon character. I took this shot in Ranomafana National Park in Madagascar while I was on a trip to visit Centre ValBio Research Facility inside the park. I had never seen a creature this interesting before, and it made me wonder just how many other amazing creatures are out there undiscovered to get on camera. Our guide Franck said he has been into the rainforest hundreds of times and has never seen this caterpillar before. It is incredible to think about the biodiversity of this amazing place.
Here are some other macro shots that I took along the way. It was hard to focus on what to concentrate more on. There were incredible small things and amazing landscape and larger lemur shots.
